Hikvision has launched its new 2-Wire modular IP video door phone for retrofitting in multi apartment buildings. This is an extension solution to already successful 2-Wire kits that are mainly used for small residential houses, using the same housing and components as the recently launched 2nd Generation IP video door phone technology. It ‘inherits’ its modular nature which makes it flexible for any scenario.
The video door phone delivers all the benefits of IP surveillance through just two wires – data and power. This makes it simple to install, saving time and cost – great for retrofitting and modernizing large residential and office building projects.
Full HD images give a clear picture of the door area on an indoor station. IR provides excellent night vision, and the inclusion of WDR (wide dynamic range) means there’s no problem if the camera is faced with direct light from outside. All in all, the indoor station screen will give a clear overview of the doorstep, and a mobile app can manage entry from anywhere.
The modular nature of the video door phone gives the system massive flexibility with a range of modules to choose to build the right system for the scenario. This can also be integrated with video surveillance, access control and intrusion systems so it can be a seamless part of a total security solution. The 2-Wire system can be combined with IP intercoms through a network that is connected to power and data distributors while also sharing common accessories and modules.
Other features include:
- Great looking image from camera that can be recorded in video surveillance system.
- High quality of audio even on noisy streets.
- Remote control via common mobile application.
- Simplified configuration.
- Optional wall or flush mounting installation.
- Common Hikvision software and application.
- Up to 16 additional cameras can be observed at the indoor station.
Typical applications of this new product will be in modernization of residential apartment buildings, school buildings and office buildings.
“This extension to our video door phone range is a great example of Hikvision as a smart home security solution provider, combining intercoms with video surveillance, access control and intrusion,” said Bhupendra Kumar, Product Head, Video Door Phone, Prama Hikvision India, “It brings a variety of modern functions such as mobile app control, high resolution images delivered at high speed, and audio quality to bring residential intercom systems to the next level.”
